...yes, try the webstart version and edit the .jnlp file to increase the
heap size. It is usually more reliable to install Jalview this way
rather than through the InstallAnywhere method.
Once you have installed Jalview through webstart you can start it from
the .jnlp file when you are not connected to the web.
The section of the "Launching Jalview" Video at around 2 minutes
explains about the .jnlp file. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RdbcdZZUDHg
gives some instructions on where to edit the .jnlp file.
I typically have mine set to 8 gigabytes since I have a 16 GB memory
I hope this helps,
